how the united states may change this influence, address this national security deficiencies him and provide global leadership in an era when the american economy may not be the overwhelming source of power it once was. increasingly, national influence will be determined by whether the countries can contribute to solving global problems or at lease whether they are making themselves indispensable to other nations. china and other developing economies are demanding a greater say in the management of the world economy through the g20 and other mechanisms. china's global leverage has increased as it liberally positioned itself as a creditor nation with more than 20% of the world current account balance surplus. we cannot depend invasively on china investing heavily in the united states government that. some thought must be given to how we work with china and other nations to establish a more sensible global balance that depends less on demand by american consumers. the united states in the g20 also must rethink the role of the international financial institutions that provide crisis

, it was six world powers that made a move today. delegates from the united states, britain, france, germany, russia and china met in brussels, belgium, and turned up the heat on iran. they didn't discuss the sanctions, not yet anyway, but that possibility served as a backdrop for today's meetings. the issue is iran's nuclear ambitions. tehran says its uranium enrichment program is for peaceful purposes only, but other countries worry it gives iran the capability of making an atomic bomb. despite some optimism in recent weeks, iran now seems to be rejecting a plan to have its uranium enriched outside the country. the delegates in brussels urged iran to reconsider, and hence the talk by president obama and others this week about the possibility of new sanctions. what kind of measures and when, that is our "lead focus" tonight. weeks after iran disclosed the existence of this once-secret nuclear facility near the holy city of qom, in brussels today representatives of the world's major powers pressed iran to accept a plan to curb its nuclear ambitions. the six countries released this statement
of the united states kicked up a firestorm when he announced his decision to try the accused architect of the 9/11 attacks in new york federal court, not far from ground zero. try him by a civilian court, not by tribunal. >> how could you be more likely to get a conviction in federal court when khalid sheik mohammed has already asked to plead guilty before a military commission and be executed?

. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> this week hearings and investigations began into the massacre of 13 soldiers at ft. hood, texas. the number one question, why didn't anyone in charge see it coming? i spoke about that with congressman pete hoekstra, he's the ranking member of the house intelligence committee. congressman, thanks very much for coming in. i know you're getting ready to catch a flight. are you satisfied with the answers you're getting so far from the executive branch of the u.s. government whether the pentagon or the administration, the army, as far as this investigation is concerned? >> no, wolf, i'm really not. and i think i probably share some of the same frustrations that senator lieberman has. i applaud the senate for holding public hearings. i hold them -- i applaud them for doing the hearings. there's no indication at all that that's going to take place on the house side. and i think they really do have to take place. you know, we had a briefing today, but way too o
there were any number of african-americans who served in the congress of these united states, served in the united states senate. served in executive offices. do you even recall that in 1852:frederick douglass was actually nominated on a ticket to be vice president of the united states? and then, in 1901 there was this speech, i can't remember the member's name, who was the last african-american to serve and then there was a gulf of some 30 long years without vigilance. without a commitment, great progress that has been worked for can be eroded and erased. and we have to keep in mind as we think about tomorrow, the powerful lessons of history. the powerful lessons of history. i want to say this about public policy. the purpose in getting people elected to office is so they can make a difference. not so that they can have m. c. behind their name. not because they can do an occasional television interview. the purpose for getting elected to public office is not to just be there. the purpose is to work to make a difference. and that difference manifests itself in the design and implemen
with the united states as the only nation in the industrialize think world that does not guarantee health care to all people. yet we spend substantially more than any other country and our outcomes are worse. clearly we need major health care reform. >> that's a point of view from the liberal democrats. senator greg, what is the republican view on health care? how is it different from the democrat view? this is a strict party line vote we're seeing tomorrow night. >> well, clearly we disagree with senator sanders. i really respect bernie's forthrightedness. he is telling it like it is, a single payer system like the english or canadian system. we genuinely believe a single payer system will undermine the quality of health care in this country. and it is not affordable. this bill is a $2.5 trillion-dollar bill. that's what it spends when it is fully phased in over a ten-year period. it would if it led to a single payer system. and i happen to think it is a precursor to that. put the government in charge of every aspect of health care in a very direct way so that you would end up with basically
and during her address, which she is delivering right now on the floor of the united states senate, senator lincoln says that it's time to begin the debate and it's not time to walk away. she says she is not afraid of the debate over health care reform. she says she is against the so-called public option, the government-run option that is the center piece of the piece of legislation that is currently on the floor of the senate, even though she's against that piece of the legislation, she says, it will not stop her from voting wre, yes, along with the rest of her democratic colleagues in helping to move this process one step forward. this is not a vote on the actual health care reform bill itself, but rather, a procedural vote that's an important step in the process, it allows the senate a majority leader reid to bring this to debate. with the yes vote of senator lincoln from arkansas, the 60 vote threshold has been reached. and the vote will be taken at eight o'clock eastern time and for now, senator reid can listen to the remainder of his colleagues speak as they have been doing all after
the job of the president of the united states? >> i believe that i am, but that's not to say that i'm putting myself out there to campaign or anything else. >> no not to say that, but you believe that you're smart enough, incisive enough, intellectual enough to handle the most powerful job in the world? do you believe that? >> i believe that i am because i have common sense and i have, i believe, the values that are reflective of so many other american values. >> joining the panel this week wall street journal editorial riley and kim strassel, to you first. do you think that sarah palin now looks presidential? >> well, i'm less concerned about her qualifications per se for being president and more interested in the question of whether she's the right to beat barack obama in 2012. if as we're told by the polesters, republicans need to win back these independent voters, that they lost to obama last year, is she the right person to do that? and we don't have a huge sample here to go by, but we do have the elections earlier this month. we had two republican gubernatorial candidates, one
, virtually every single member of this body in the united states senate is a member of the baby boom generation. as in my view a generation of americans, i was born in the last year of that generation, given more opportunity than any generation of people in the history of this planet because our grandparents and our parents were willing to make hard choices, understanding that part of our national creed, part of our legacy is assuring that we're expanding opportunity for those that come after us. we are having this health care debate at a moment in our country's history beset by incredible economic difficulties. this is the worst recession since the great depression. but we now know that even during the period of economic growth before our economy fell into this terrible recession, that powg families were struggling. during the last period of economic growth, median family income in the united states actually declined. as far as i know, it's the first period of recovery in the history of the united states when median family income actually went down, and that was at the same time tha
in the united states. a lot of those democrats, however, in congress right now are very moderate. a lot of them are not for comprehensive immigration reform. none want to take a vote on immigration right now. it is the new third rail of american politics. but obama made promises in that area and so did a lot of more liberal democrats. the hispanic caucus is growing in influence. i think that's kind of the next policy piece to explode in washington. host: our guests have been patricia murphy. the wsi attached to our website. also joining us, jillian bandies. again, their website attached to the c-span website as well. thank you for joining us. we're going to do a short bit of phones and then we're going to talk about bus service in the united states. we'll be right back.

to understand the importance of the railroad to the united states and to the world at that time. before the railroad came along, the only way to get across the country, or from any points, was either by horse and carriage, or by canal, which was very slow. the railroad revolutionized the ability to move across the country, and they became an extraordinarily powerful business. >> so powerful in fact, that in 1947, over 65 million people - the equivalent of almost half our nation's population at the time - passed through grand central in just one year. that gave birth to a popular saying in the 1940s, "busier than grand central station." except, that name is not quite correct. >> the real name of this building is grand central terminal. and the reason for that is that the trains terminate here. >> of course, trains also "originate" from here as well. grand central is a sprawling complex of ramps, stores, tracks, and huge spaces. >> what you see actually here is what we like to say is the tip of the iceberg. there's so much more that goes on behind the scenes. this is just the public port

to the united states as the first state guest under the administration of president barack obama. in this city of great institutions, the petersen institute of special significance for me because on my last tour of duty here as minister for commerce at the embassy in the early 1990's, i relied a great deal on the wisdom and analysis of the petersen institute to make sense of a world that was then caught in tech tonic, political and economic shifts. that was also a time of momentous change in the direction of the indian economy . it was a change that was triggered by the immediate cause of an external payment crisis. but it was in response also to a fundamental reorientation in the mindset that had bun in the 1980's on what it would take to accelerate the economic development of the world's second-most populous nation. inled ya's nearly two decades of economic reforms have taken place in our own unique circumstances of a vibrant democrat creas, unparalleled pluralism and diversity and extraordinary social and economic challenges. they took place at a time when regional political parties were gr
current system wastes money. it's so inefficient the united states spends more than twice per person than the average spending in 29 other industrialized nations. there simply aren't enough health insurance options available to most americans today. when at least 17 states, including arkansas, only one insurance company controls more than half the insurance market. in at least 22 states, still only two carriers control half the market or more. patients and doctors, madame president are routinely making little or no objective information about which treatments are most effective. american capitalism is based on choice and competition. because when these elements are present, consumers can most always find the best value for their money. that's not true in health care. so, by creating health insurance exchanges through which small businesses and individuals can choose from a men of private plans, we can enhance cost trance parn si, create head-to-head transparency. these are facts. these are facts, madame president, and whether we are republicans or democrats or independents, i believe that
